2018 Jeep Cherokee Bergen County NJ
We know that having more for your money is something you’re looking for when shopping for a compact SUV in the Bergen County NJ and Rockland County NY area. That’s where the 2018 Jeep Cherokee comes in.

The new Cherokee has been updated to deliver even more thanks to the model lineup being revamped. For starters, the base level Sport has been eliminated from last year and that value goes into the Latitude, while the Latitude Plus is an all-new trim for 2018 to give you additional upgrades for a lower price.

In addition, there are some new standard amenities you can get in the Latitude, Limited and Trailhawk trims. With that being said, let’s dive into what’s new in the 2018 Jeep Cherokee.
